Ahhh. I had forgot about the top box incident.. glad you managed to make it all the way home without it trying to jump off its rack :).. I think yourself and marmite had got the refastening well under control before I got there... its the only bikers meet up I've been on where one of the members just happened to have a cordless drill on them :o

hi fred,
nice to hear from you, hope your wifes health improves... yes i thought martin looked rather dapper, especialy since it was his 86th birthday the week before, i do think we will make it across the channel into france one day.
next year we have the scottish trip to look forward to in may, and also plans are being made for a ride into spain with martin in june, and hulme end again in august and hopefully a few other meet ups/ride outs as well.

well thats the 5th vf1000 hulme end meet up completed, its hard to imagine that we have done five of these now, and they just keep getting better, great roads, stunning scenery, fine company and a large portion of merry ment.

The saturday rideout started with a brisk ride through to matlock bath via the recently opened via gellier road, that road is awsome, pit stop for refreshments in matlock bath before heading to CMC motorcycles at clay cross, then back through matlock heading to bakewell and onto the Station cafe at Grindleford for lunch, and what a cracking little cafe it is, outside dinning area and larger than life portions.
From there the pace picked up a we left the slightly busy roads and headed for Bamford and the fantastic Strines road, now, i always complain about cyclists cluttering the road up, but as this road was resurfaced last year for the tour de yorkshire with smooth sticky tarmac, ill forgive them, especially as not many pleasur cyclists use it, from there we wingled our way through to holmefirth, refresments in the Old bridge pub, from there it was up and over holme moss, down through Glossop and up and over the famouse Snake Pass which was virtually traffic free, which lead to a lot of fun, down through Bamford again and up through the Winnats Pass, a cracking ride over the A623 before hitting the B roads through Calver, hassop, youlgreave, finnally ending up back at Hulme End at 7.30, ready for the 8.00 pre-booked table at the Manifold Pub.
I would just like to thank everyone who turned up, bif, john,graham, martin,phil and paul, for being as usual, great company, without you guys these weekend jaunts just wouldnt happen, hope you all enjoyed it as much as i did.

Yep.. its annoying..and there's no guarantee that other photo sharing sites go the same way... when I have time I will start replacing the pics but it's a big task...

Hi rob..
Yep it's completely pee'd me off.. I had somewhere in the region of 300 pics on this site linked through photo bucket, all of which are now displaying the $400 dollar ransom demand...
Windy solar pointed me in the direction of another photo sharing site called "imger".. there's a link to it in the "how to post images" thread in the gallery section... and to be honest its a better site than photo bucket. .

VF1000 / Re: Top end oil feed from oil cooler pressure line?
« on: July 30, 2017, 08:03:59 pm »
Hi speedy..
There have been a number of people suggested using the oil cooler outlet to feed the cams more oil than the standard set up.. I don't know if anybody actually tried it.. to me, the main issue would be the lack of an oil relief valve.. I would be concerned that too much pressure could build up, and with nowhere for it to escape could potentially hydraulic lock the oil pump or blow the seals out of the internal delivery pipe, either of which is not good..

hi rob,

the top photo is the original cam caps, the second photo with the extra moulding is an updated version,
as far as i understand, honda had concerns when some of the fe's started to suffer from cam wobble, so strengthened the end of the cam caps hoping to reduce it, the later version also has slightly larger oil holes.

hi jay,

im 99% sure its stamped on the back of the ignition lock,  also, your fuel cap key number is stamped on the back of the hinge that holds the fuel cap down, you need to remove it to see the number.
If your really lucky all your locks will still be opperated with the same key.
